API 500 series 525 mono Compressor / Limiter: The 525 is a fully discrete feedback type compressor { a la 1176, 660, etc. } and was first manufactured 45 years ago. Compress or limit. Unique ceiling control linking threshold and make-up gain on one pot, there is also a de-ess switch. The 525 goes beautifully before the 550B EQ for killer kicks and snares, or after the 512C mic pre for smooth rich vocals. One of very few compressors that tracks acoustic guitar par excellence. Wonderful on synths, tame that Moog ! Phatt sound. +4 balanced I/O. Made in USA
